Suge Knight net worth: Suge Knight is an American record executive and music producer who has a net worth of $200 thousand. Suge Knight was born Marion Knight, Jr. on April 19, 1965 in Lynwood, California. His childhood nickname "Sugar Bear" gave rise to the future moniker "Suge". Suge is most for being the former CEO of Death Row Records, a company that was instrumental in bringing gangster rap to the mainstream in the 1990s. Suge and Death Row were early to sign artists such as Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur, and Snoop Dogg. During its heyday, Death Row sold over 150 million albums around the world and generated an estimated $750 million in net revenues. Death Row Records began to fall apart after Mr. Knight was jailed on parole violations. Soon several of Death Row's most prominent artists began to leave the label, most notably Dr. Dre. When Tupac was murdered while driving in the passenger seat of a BMW in Las Vegas, Suge was in the drivers seat. Over the two decades after Death Row, Suge has had several run ins with the law. He ended up serving four years in prison on parole violations between 1997 and 2001. He was arrested again in Las Vegas on February 8, 2012 on marijuana charges. Today he serves as CEO of a new company called Black Kapital Records.
